Moose und die Mafia - aufregende Tage auf Alcatraz Der zwölfjährige Moose wohnt mit seiner Familie seit kurzem auf Alcatraz - sein Vater arbeitet dort als Gefängniswärter. Moose fällt es nicht leicht, sich auf der Gefängnisinsel einzuleben. Das liegt vor allem an Piper, der Tochter des Direktors, die immer wieder Unfrieden stiftet, und nicht so sehr an den Gefangenen. Denn der Faszination, Tür an Tür mit Al Capone zu leben, kann auch Moose sich nicht entziehen. Und als seine Schwester eines Tages Hilfe braucht, wendet Moose sich mit einer Bitte an den berühmten Verbrecher ... "Fesselnd und wunderbar zu lesen!" (Kirkus Reviews) "Außergewöhnlich und atmosphärisch dicht! Choldenko schildert die Stimmungsschwankungen in Moose' Familie genauso nuanciert wie das Mysterium Alcatraz und das Miteinander der Kinder auf der Insel." (Publishers Weekly)

A charming, funny and utterly enchanting book that skillfully and delicately weaves a humorous tale with some important issues.

Alcatraz Island in the 1930s isn't the most normal place to grow up, but it's home for Moose Flanagan, his autistic sister, Natalie, and all the families of the guards. When Moose's dad gets promoted to Associate Warden, despite being an unlikely candidate, it's a big deal. But the cons have a point system for targeting prison employees, and his dad is now in serious danger. After a fire starts in the Flanagan's apartment, Natalie is blamed, and Moose bands with the other kids to track down the possible arsonist. Then Moose gets a cryptic note from the notorious Al Capone himself. Is Capone trying to protect Moose's dad too? If Moose can't figure out what Capone's note means, it may be too late. The last heart-pounding installment in the New York Times bestselling, Newbery Honor-winning Alcatraz trilogy is not to be missed! "Superlative historical fiction." -- School Library Journal (starred review for Al Capone Shines My Shoes)
